Last weeks shopping cost £58 but as you can see below
I got a lot for my money. We ate really well but next week
will be a challenge as I have overspent each week so have £32 to spend.
My mother Wendy Moorhouse Johns came to stay from Wednesday to Saturday, she is vegetarian and
Ellen came to eat on Wednesday.
Made parsley pesto with remaining parsley and pinenuts from last week.
Made more Labnah its so easy. Just tip fat free yoghurt into a muslin cloth and leave to drain for a few hours. I save the liquid for stock!
I made cream cheese spinach feta pie with some, smoked salmon and cream cheese beigels and mini lemon cheesecakes.
Made flapjack for lunch and snacks.
The trifle went down a treat, made Victoria sponge for it. Saved half the custard for crumble on Sunday.
Picked Wild Garlic from garden and Rhubarb from the allotment
Got a huge jar of capers from 99p shop and Big bottle soy sauce from chinese supermarket on Rye Lane rest of the food was from Lidl and Sainsburys
